The deepest Metro station in St. Petersburg (and in whole Russia) is "Admiralteyskaya" ("Admiralty") station, which was opened few months ago.

The list of the deepest Russian Metro stations. Almost all stations of this list are located in St. Petersburg Metro, which considered the most deepest subway system in the world:
1) "Admiralteyskaya" ("Admiralty"), St. Petersburg (2011) - 86 meters;
2) "Park Pobedy" ("Victory Park"), Moscow (2003) - 84 m;
3) "Komendatsky Prospekt" ("Commandant Avenue"), St. Petersburg (2005) - 75 m;
4) "Proletarskaya" ("Proletarian"), St. Petersburg (1981) - 72 m;
5) "Ploshchad Lenina" ("Lenin Square"), St. Petersburg (1958) - 71 m;
5) "Primorskaya" ("Maritime"), St. Petersburg (1979) - 71 m;
5) "Sadovaya" ("Garden"), St. Petersburg (1991) - 71 m;
8) "Chernyshevskaya" ("Nikolay Chernyshevsky"), St. Petersburg (1958) - 70 m;
9) "Prospekt Bolshevikov" ("Bolsheviks Avenue"), St. Petersburg (1985) - 68 m;
10) "Vyborgskaya" ("Vyborg"), St. Petersburg (1975) - 67 m;
10) "Ploshchad Muzhestva" ("Bravery Square"), St. Petersburg (1975) - 67 m;
10) "Chornaya Rechka" ("Black River"), St. Petersburg (1982) - 67 m;
10) "Pionerskaya" ("Pioneers"), St. Petersburg (1982) - 67 m.

Moscow doesn't have such unstable soils like in St. Petersburg. That allow to build shallow Metro stations almost everywhere outside Moscow's historical centre. In contrast, it's safe and reasonable to build shallow and ground-level Metro stations only in few certain outskirts of St. Petersburg.

On the another side, construction on such depths is more difficult, more expensive and more slowly. That's one of main reasons why Moscow Metro almost in three times larger than in St. Petersburg (in terms of total length and number of stations).

Maybe it's just me, but I find it quite strange that "Primorskaya" station would ever be translated as if it were "Morskaya" (Maritime). I would imagine if there ever came a time to translate rather than just transliterate these stations, it would be "Seaside Station."

But due to some unknown decision, "Primorskiy Kray" has been destined to be "Maritime Province" in English. Perhaps these are the same people who brought us Garvard, Garlem and Ogayo but forgot to bring us Oklagoma.

Perhaps someone can answer why in Russian Oklahoma is not Oklagoma? I realize this is way off-topic, but it is something that has bothered me for years.

Primorsky (masculine), Primorskaya (feminine), or Primorskoye (neuter) is a Russian adjective translating to "maritime" or "near the sea".

It should be Oklagoma in Russian because Ogayo is how you say Ohio in Russian and Gavayi is how you say Hawaii. So the "h" becomes a "g" in Russian, but for some reason, it's not Oklagoma.

This rule is somewhat arbitrary..
yes Hamburg is still Гамбург
Helsingfors (the origin and the Swedish name of Helsinki) for those Russians who [still] know where it is is still Гельсингфорс
but the Finnish derivative Helsinki itself har never turned into Гельсинки (it might be called so in some other Slavic languages though..?) and is pronounced Хельсинки
the Swedish Helsingborg is now more often called Хельсингборг and more seldom Гельсингборг
the Danish Helsing°r however for some strange reason has become Эльсинор or even Хельсингёр according to the wikipedia but definitely not Гельсингёр

from the phonetic point of view all these "H" are almost the same

So Гамбурги and Огайи might as well become Хамбург and Охайо in the future.
